BaT Auction: 15k-Mile 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SL

This post was originally published on this site

This 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SL shows just under 15k miles and was sold new in the Detroit area, where it remained until a move to Oregon in 2015. The car is finished in Almandine Red Metallic over an Anthracite leather interior and retains its factory removable hardtop. Power is from a 5.6-liter M117 V8 paired with a 4-speed automatic transmission. The car was acquired in 2016 for personal use by its current owner, a New Jersey dealer, and recent service included fluid changes as well as a new A/C compressor, tires, and sensors. This R107 is offered by the seller in Neptune, New Jersey on behalf of the dealer with manuals, a clean Carfax report, and a clear Oregon title.

The exterior is finished in Almandine Red Metallic (512), and the condition of the paintwork is shown up close in a number of gallery photos below. No history of accidents is shown on the Carfax report. The matching removable hardtop is shown fitted above, and the black soft top is pictured raised in the gallery.

The video above highlights the condition of the exterior, interior, and engine bay. Factory 15″ alloy wheels wear a new set of Pirelli tires and sensors installed in preparation for the sale.
